Paris

Paris

Visit Paris, Frances capital and largest city! One of the worlds leading cultural centres and ranked in the top three most influential countries in the world, there is no more exhilarating place to visit! You can fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and when there do not miss out on a visit to the nineteenth-century opera house Opéra Garnier elegant and the sophisticated classical music played there. Or, if opera is not your thing, then make sure to check out the magnificent Eiffel Tower standing at 1063ft over the city centre of Paris. It offers some of the best views of the city centre allowing you to take in the true beauty of this great city! If you are interested in art, make sure to check out the Louvre which is the worlds most visited museum with some of the worlds most prized works of art on show. Forever emblematic in romantic hearts is the "City of Love". It is also held in history buffs' minds as a city rich with history, in the creative as abundant in art, and for fashion plates as the epitome of innovative haute couture. The most common and enriching destinations are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Palais Garnier, enjoying an afternoon at the opulent and historic Versailles Palace, or just simply strolling across the bridges along the Seine River and taking in the local cuisine and wine. There are various ways to arrive, and it all depends on your own personal travel plans or budget. There are two primary airports: Charles de Gaulle (CDG), and Paris-Orly Airport (ORY). To make general flights to Paris search regardless of specific airport, use the city code 'PAR'. To better make the most of your budget, keep an eye out on flight and hotel packages and the exchange rates several months in advance to get a feel for the market fluctuations and when to strike on fares. Once in the city, start every morning with a cup of espresso and a crust of baguette, walk everywhere and take in the sights, and buy an affordable pass for their intricate and efficient metro system. Make use of 'S'il vous plait' and 'merci' often. The French aren't as snooty as they're said to be, but manners are always internationally appreciated. By the end, you will be sad to go.

STAY in Paris

Stay in Paris
Vice Versa Hotel

Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. These are the seven deadly sins. And have served as inspiration for the new project of interior designer Chantal Thomass. The result: a comprehensive redesign of the Vice Versa Hotel in Paris.   Each and every flower ornament, butterfly pattern and lace ribbon has been conceived by the renowned designer herself. The same applies to the furniture, beds and fauteuils, wallpapers, fabrics and curtains. Afterwards Thomass has put everything into the rooms of the seven floors and painted them with matching colours: mellow in beige, sensual in black, or playful in sugar pink. In addition Thomass glued notes to the wall, painted oversized cutlery on the carpets and screwed tea pots to the ceiling as light fixtures. In order to avoid an explosion of colour there are cosy sofas in white in the entrance area. Parts of the hotel mutate into a Etruscan palace. That is inciting indeed - but not necessarily to sleep!

Hotel Square

The hotel Square in Paris is easy to find as it is located close by the Eiffel Tower. At the moment the Costes brothers build a new hotel and restaurant on the opposite side of the Seine. And when the Costes brothers build something in Paris the environment will automatically turn hip. And so is the shape of the windows which provided the name of the hotel. Architect Roger Taillibert and owner Patrick Derderian are responsible for that. The latter also had the idea of bringing art near to his guests. In a semicircularly shaped gallery in the reception hall and in the conference rooms you can marvel at sculptures and other works by Luis Tomasello or Scott Slagerman. Hopefully they are safe in the five star hotel with own garage! Absolutely recommendable is the in-house restaurant Zebra Square (the wall in screaming yellow automatically whets the appetite) and the newly designed Nuxe Spa in the basement of the hotel.

Duo

It doesn't get more central than this! The location of the Duo in the heart of the Marais quarter, surrounded by restaurants, bars and boutiques, is not to be beaten. As hard as it is to leave this feelgood-hotel, go out and explore the very urban and unmistakably French Marais district.   Out of the once cool design hotel, renovation has turned the Duo into a stylish feelgood hotel. Modern decorations meet old frames and practical furnishings on wood-parquett floors out of the 18th century set the scene here at the Duo. The rooms are fantastic, but the most comfortable thing about this hotel is that shopaholics can drop off their shopping bags before heading off into the next boutique. Well, at least when you are in Marais to go shopping. Double rooms from ?200 a night.

SIGHTS in Paris

Sights in Paris
Palais de Tokyo

The Palais de Tokyo is the ideal location to present art. The sobering cracked concrete, the exposed ventilation shafts and the counter found in a campervan could almost be a concept. The truth is, they ran out of money during renovations. The grotesque and uncouth ambience has only given this arthouse an even bigger name. The young art scene love the unpretentious venue and the Palais de Tokyo pays it's dues: it is open until midnight. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, fotography, video, fashion, lierature and dance are all on show here. The exhibitions are daring and often well worth seeing. Vernissages take place on the first Thursday of the month and entry is free!

Fête de Ganesh

The yearly Fête de Ganesh is one of the most colourful events in Paris. Every year in August little India gets into party mode and showcases its culture in the French capital. The celebrations start after a religious ceremony at the Sri Manicka Vinayakar Alayam Temple.   Parisians, commuters and tourists come from all corners of the city to witness this spectacle at the 18th Arrondissement. Active participants dance through the streets with figures of Ganesha decorated with colourful fruits and flowers and smash coconuts on the pavement. There's Indian music, dancers in traditional dress and street artists.   The ceremony takes place annually in August.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou is an absolute must! You have to witness this cultural centre at least from the outside. The fascinating blue stems from the pens of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and won the covetted 2007 Pritzker prize. If you take the time to visit the inner halls of the building, then you will be rewarded with the most innovative cultural program the city has to offer. It's all about contemporary art; encompassing theater, music, visual arts, film and literature.   Access to the rooftop terrace is also included in the entry rpices. Through the transparent pipes, escalators take you all the way to the top level at a height of 35 metres. Sounds high? The view is well worth the trip!

EAT in Paris

Eat in Paris
Austern & Co.

Eating oysters in Paris is just as important as a visit to the Eiffel tower. It doesn't get anymore authentic than this. Francis Dubourg, the owner of La Cabane à Huitres, cultivates his own oysters and puts them fresh on the table. His son travels to the Atlantic coast three times a week and returns with the fresh huitres.   13 magnificent claire oysters can be yours for just 13 euros. Those who aren't cut out for the slimy consistency of an oyster can opt for foie gras, cheese specialties or cannelles (small caramel cakes). The restauarant is very spartan and ordinary, but the level of service given by Francis and his daughter well and truly make up for it. A small story accompanies every wine and every meal, which is always told with a hearty serving of Esprit.

Le Tokyo Eat

What's the current favourite of the Parisian in-crowd? To dine in the city's Museumscafés. And for good reason, as there are many benefits to be had. Most are hip, stylish and serve modern cuisine and also let's one's feasting appear to be cultivated.   As a tourist, you should be honest enough to visit the museum prior to grabbing a table, especially as the Palais de Tokyo will fascinate those with an interest for modern art. Once inspired, sit down and enjoy a mix of international and asian food on offer. It's also a form of art. And the dishes are as well thought through as the interior. The extravagant lighting was designed by Stéphane Maupin and is a real attraction. The crowd here is young, hip and beautiful!

Chartier

Affordable French cuisine? It does exist! The Chartier is a great example, even though you would never guess so at first sight. Entering through the door is like taking a step back in time. The Chartier was opened in 1896, with the mission of offering decent French cuisine at a decent price. Not much has changed since then, the furnishing and ambience included. Back in the day, this attracted both the rich and the poor, but these days the Parisians have to share this little gem with the tourists. A tip for those with a formidable hunger: expect to wait up to 30 minutes at any time of the day, so plan in a wait before the hunger pangs get the better of you.

SHOPPING in Paris

Shopping in Paris
Didier Ludot

The God of vintage high fashion has a name. That this name is French, probably doesn't surprise anyone. Didier Ludot has been collecting and selling vintage fashion and jewellery since 1975. Designers visit him to be inspired and museums come to borrow exhibition pieces.   It even feels like you're in a museum here in Didier's den. The main fare is antiquated pieces from French designers, but there are also a few American classics to be found. So come and take pleasure in the highlights, such as Christian Dior's New Look or Cristobal Balenciaga's sculptures of the 1960's.

Freep's'Star

Welcome to the oversized storage box. You've got to fight through the fumes of mothballs. The reward could be a piece of clothing that you would have never dreamt of! So, hold your breath and start browsing. This second-hand store is packed to the ceiling with great pieces, you just have to rummage until you've found the right one. And that's before any of the other trendsetters, who flock here in big numbers, find it first!   A few hours later and a stuffed nose, combined with a few new tasteful pieces for the wardrobe and you have to think to yourself: if Freep's'Star was bigger and more organised, it would've only been half as much fun!

Yukiko Paris

Paris fashion just as you imagined it: fur doesn't even appear to be too extravagant here, just simply elegant. And that pulls in the celebrities and fashionistas in droves. This charming shop is modelled on an elegant bedroom and possesses beauties from the likes of Hermes Seidenschal, Chanel and Christian Dior.   The sortiment here is completed with pieces from the owners own collection. Yukikos fashion is very feminine, with the dominating materials being fur and silk. This store is an absolute hotspot in the scene with the models in the showroom and the nearby café setting the perfect ambience.
